Café Manhattan

The Head Conkerer’s favourite

The Café Manhattan is a great example of how a touch of Conker Coffee Liqueur adds a delicious coffee twist on a classic serve. Invented by Head Conkerer, Rupert, this drink is the perfect end to a hard day’s graft in the Distillery.


  • 60ml Bulleit Rye Whiskey
  • 15ml Cocchi Vermouth Di Torino
  • 15ml Conker Coffee Liqueur
  • 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • Maraschino cherry and orange peel to garnish


Add all your liquids to an ice filled mixing glass (a pint glass works wonders) and stir down for a good 15-20 seconds. Strain into a pre-chilled coupe glass and add your cocktail cherry. Stress a thick belt of orange peel over the glass, releasing the oils over the drink and glass. Find your nearest wing-back chair and sip purposefully.

That’s the Spirit!
